Each artwork draws you in, so much that you find yourself wanting to know more about the person portrayed. And lucky for you, you can!

Come and meet the artists during their one night only exhibition in Studio 56. You can ask questions about the work and every piece on display will be available for purchase.

Cecilia Hine is a Brisbane based painter, occasional sculpture and illustrator. She studied Ancient History and English Literature at the University of Queensland and is highly influenced by mythological and religious figures, as well as recently becoming inspired by the beauty in nature, completing new works in still life and landscape.

Milly Davies lives in the beautiful Gold Coast hinterland and studied at Meadowbank College of Fine Arts. She takes inspiration from fine art to pop culture, which is apparent in her mixed media style. She carefully layers painted portraits and wallpaper backgrounds together, and houses them in the most exquisite ornate frames. She tells the stories of children, often mixed with her own difficult stories, as she strives for consistency and security in art and life.

You will fall in love with these artists and their work, so don't miss out! Enjoy this one night show and further gorgeous creations to the tunes of DJ Flyfingaz, while sipping cocktails from the licenced bar and tasting the flavours of the world with our tapas street food trucks.
